AceShowbiz - Cardi B has gotten real about the reason why she delayed the release of her sophomore album. During an Instagram Live, the "WAP" hitmaker admitted that anxiety is behind the postponement.
"I'm just a mom and I do have anxiety," the Bronx native said in the Tuesday, December 6 live stream. "I've been having a lot of anxiety, because I know right after I drop my album, I have to go out on tour and I have bad separation anxiety from my kids."
"When it comes to music and everything, I just be feeling like I don't be liking anything. I feel like I got so many songs and I don't like anything," the wife of Offset continued. "I feel like nothing is good enough… And I got so much money saved up I just be like, 'Yeah, whatever the f**k.' "
Cardi went on to confess that music feels like a "job" to her these day. "Making music to me has become like a job that gives me anxiety because everybody just critiques everything that I do," she shared.
"It just like, sometimes you don't want to do something that gives you that much anxiety, so I just be freezing myself, but I have to let that go," the femcee further elaborated. "I have to release more music - I have to go out there."
Cardi, who recently revealed she was paid $1 million for a 35-minute performance, has confirmed that her new album will be out next year. "Yeah I have no choice. I have to put it out. I have to put it out," she said in the December 1 episode of "The Breakfast Club".
"I have like a couple of songs that are definite. I don't know, I don't know what's going on with me," the Grammy Award-winning artist added. "I need to just make up my mind and put it out… I think I'm too much in my head about it."
